The normal transition of a superconducting magnet system with stored energy 0.5 MJ and power output up to 1 MW has been investigated. It is shown that normal transition is initiated by thermomagnetic instability of the superconducting state which occurs in the second layer of the winding. The theory enables quantitative calculation of the transition current of the magnet if the parameters of the superconductor and characteristics of the magnet are known.
